finish it up!
i love a new year! i love making goals, although the fervour only lasts a week or two at most. i wanted to write a post with a list of quilts that i want to make in 2013, but then i figured i should really make a list of all those unfinished quilts and maybe by showing them here, i would have more ooomph to finish them up.
i'm really determined to clean these puppies up at the beginning of this year! (Since January 1st i've already made some headway)
i have projects in all stages of finishing. all the way from block not quite put together, to just needing a binding. i was going to make a list of from oldest to newest here, but i ran out of time to document each one in detail.
believe me there are at least a dozen! although a lot of them are smaller projects so it shouldn't take me too long!
i even braved getting out this very oldest of my ufo's (above) i think it's at least two years old! i have some negative feeling about this one, even though i know it's not such a bad quilt but i think maybe it was the way i was feeling when i made it. crazy because it's been sitting 3/4 done all this time. It only needed a few more lines of quilting, and binding. I finished up the quilting yesterday, now i'm determined to get it bound!
this one has also been waiting to be quilted for about a year! don't ask me why cause i really love this one! (as of right now this one has been machine quilted in rows around each block and i'm slowly hand quilting with black perle cotton around each star.
and then i've got a stack of old bee blocks that are so cute, it's a shame that they're still waiting in the cupboard! I made some of them into a quilt back here, maybe i'll do something similiar with these.
i love these blocks too! my intention was to make nine blocks and make a baby quilt. i think that is still my intention, although half square triangles make me go a bit wormy!
unfortunately this is not quite everything yet, but i'm on a roll! i'll show you the finishes as they come along!
